    From Yahoo:
    States struggling with highest credit card debt? Trump’s South.
    Nine out of the top 10 states with the highest credit card debt burden in the nation share two things in common: they’re in the South and they voted for Donald Trump in 2016.

    GOP stands for Great Of Depression.

    And you still run away when it's proven you are wrong. You didn't respond to this post, coward. You have a lot of nerve posting about "memes," when you are busy being a Russia/Putin apologist.

    From the thread you ran away from:

    Deckard said:
    It’s bizarre to even have to say such a thing to someone with any knowledge of history. There are so many reasons not to delude one’s self about Russia.

    Putin was a KGB intelligence officer for 16 years for the Soviet Union, until the empire fell at the end of 1991, specializing in foreign intelligence.

    Putin entered politics in Leningrad, which soon returned to its former name, St Petersburg, immediately after the collapse of the Soviet Union.

    It is Putin’s ardent desire to return Russia to its “former glory” as an empire and world power. This is well documented with many quotes from the man himself. He considers the fall of the Soviet Union and the loss of Russia’s empire a travesty.

    Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, seizing by force the Ukrainian Crimea Peninsula, was the first forcible annexation of part of a European country since 1945.

    A sham “referendum” was held in Crimea shortly after the invasion. Putin claimed something like 98% approval for his actions there, which is completely absurd.

    Using the same tactics Russia had used seizing Crimea, regular Army troops with their insignia removed and under the command of Russian military officers, Russia invaded eastern Ukraine. They created, armed, and supported with heavy weapons manned by Russian forces a “separatist” army that is still fighting Ukraine’s military. Russia claims that the “separatists” use captured Ukrainian heavy weapons, which is demonstrably false. Most of the heavy weapons are Russian and were not in the inventory of Ukraine’s military at the time of Russia’s invasion.

    A Russian anti-air missile, again, not in Ukraine’s inventory, in 2014 was used to shoot down Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 from Amsterdam, killing nearly 300 civilians, a large number of them Dutch. A long and thorough investigation by the Dutch government put full blame on Russia for the atrocity. The anti-air battery was transported from Russia to occupied Ukraine the day of the attack, returning after it, minus 1 missile. This has been confirmed by US and NATO surveillance satellites, as well as other assets.


    I could go on, but I think this is enough, and I left out a hell of a lot. In my opinion, the sanctions we have on Russia should be more severe than they are, and we should dramatically increase our military aid to Ukraine. Mr trump’s bizarre love affair with Putin is inexplicable. His actions since taking office have, time and again, been to benefit Russia and undermine the United States, NATO, the European Union, and other friends and allies of our country. “Getting closer” to Russia is the last thing we should do. I haven’t even gotten into Russia’s interference in the 2016 elections here, in the Brexit vote, and in other European elections, all well documented by numerous US and European intelligence agencies. As it is, the only thing preventing trump from embracing Putin and Russia more than he has is the United States Congress.

    Not everyone can have the finely honed detailed understanding of all things Russia that you've demonstrated on these boards.

    Ohh Russia and China are very easy to understand and fairly transparent. The Republicans have gotten on their knees and swallowed everything Russia has to offer. The Democrats and Republicans have both whored themselves to the CCP for pure greed.

    Neither Russia nor China is an ally of the American people. Neither share the values or principles of Western thought.

    Yet here you are, like a lap dog slurping up whatever your master tosses you to chew on.
